If Keith Skues, and his latter-day disciple Paul Rusling had used common sense, which is something in very short supply within the anorak community, they would have known better than to take from a novel called 'Rocking the Boat', which deliberately concealed real names; distorted some real events, and substituted some of the real events with fake events; in order to create their own works of fiction about a non-existent character called 'Jimmy Ross'!
Note: There is no such person by that name in the book by Ian Cowper Ross!
In his novel, Ian Cowper Ross wrote about a man named Paul Shaw who had a father called Jim by the mother of Paul Shaw, and called Jimmy by a visitor. By extension, that character would be Jimmy Shaw. The book even refers to a car wash business named Shaw. But the Shaw family did not, and do not exist, and therefore that business did not exist!
Contrary to the loony-tune words of someone calling himself 'Fred Bramley', all of the events that matter in the novel take place in California, USA; Chelsea, or Surrey in England.
However, Keith Skues and Paul Rusling claim that the Shaw family is real, and so Jim or Jimmy Shaw was renamed Jimmy Ross - by them. Their only source is Ian Cowper Ross and their referrals to source material derived from his novel 'Rocking the Boat'; or from interviews given by Ian Cowper Ross. So it seems that Skues and Rusling created novels of their own!
We now know that the Kenco Coffee Shop provides a great clue for anyone trying to unravel the real story behind the book 'Rocking the Boat', because the real story was taking place a mere six doors away on King's Road in Chelsea. Using this initial clue we have now unscrambled a lot of the Ian Cowper Ross novel, and we now know a lot more about generations of the Ross family and their many connections.
But there is more to find and we are still looking for the missing bits. Once we have them they will form the basis for the Biography of Ian Cowper Ross, and the basis for revealing for the very first time the really true story (not the Ray Clark "really true" version which is the hoax version), about the beginnings of 'Radio Caroline' in 1964.
Why are we telling you this now?
Because we have just this morning made another major find in documented evidence!
To learn what that discovery is you will have to wait a little longer.
